Cate created a card game. In Cate’s game, a player draws 2 cards from a standard deck of cards, without replacing the first card before drawing the second. If the 2 cards are even numbers, the player wins. Face cards (ace, king, queen, and jack) are not considered even or odd. What is the probability that a player will win the game?

Use probability notation to write the problem to be solved.

Determine if the two events are independent or dependent.

Use the Multiplication Rule to determine which probability and conditional probabilities need to be calculated.

Find the probability and conditional probability.

Use the Multiplication Rule to find the compound probability of the two events.
